A Jerusalem court has convicted Ehud Olmert of fraud and breach of trust in the latest twist in a long-running scandal that led to his political downfall.
Mr Olmert was acquitted of the charges back in 2012, when the court said that the businessman Morris Talansky did give him around £400,000 during his terms as Jerusalem major and government minister, but that this did not prove criminal intent on Mr Olmert's part.
Since then, his former office manager, Shula Zaken, agreed to become a state witness.
Her testimony, that some of the cash was used to pay her salary, prompted the retrial, which concluded on Monday.
Mr Olmert will be sentenced in May, and the expected jail term will be added to the six years that he faces following a conviction in another case.
A year ago he was convicted for receiving bribes to pave the way for the construction of a large housing estate in Jerusalem when he was mayor of the city.
His six-year prison term is delayed pending an appeal, and he is expected to appeal against Monday's verdict.
